Robot now makes tracks through Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, April 1, 2008
Children's Hospital of Wisconsin now uses a robotic cart called TUG to move equipment and supplies throughout the hospital. Doing so allows staff to concentrate on transporting patients more quickly, say hospital officials. In all, there are about 100 TUG units at institutions throughout the nation, say representatives from Aethon Corp., which manufactures the machine.
